WinSat.exe - No Dialog Box While Running
Running Vista Ultimate (32 bit)...

Determing my "Windows Experience Rating" I run "update my score" from the
"Rate and improve your computer's performance" screen... WinSat.exe
executes, but no progress dialog appears as it did when Vista was first
installed... I know WinSat's running because I can watch it in process
explorer, and it does seem to updating because when it finishes I can
"refresh" the screen where I started it and the last rating date and time is
updated...

I would guess that the link or registry key that executes WinSat has some
switch set that turns off the progress dialog... The following key has
values set as follows:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\RunMRU

a - c:\windows/system32\winsat.exe\1
b - c:\windows/system32\winsat.exe /formal\1
c - c:\windows/system32\winsat.exe /formal\1

Is the "\1" the culprit ?

RE: WinSat.exe - No Dialog Box While Running
Hello Tim,

Thank you for posting here.

From the post, I understand you run "update my score", the winsat.ext
executes, but no progress dialog box appears.

This is Windows Vista Hardware Assessment newsgroup, and we only support
Windows Vista Hardware Assessment tool issue here. Since your issue is
about The Windows System Assessment Tool (Winsat.exe), it is a Windows
Vista built-in component and has no relationship with Windows Vista
Hardware Assessment tool, please repost your issue in Vista general
newsgroup for further assistance.

This newsgroup is primarily for issues involving deployment, configuration,
consultation and troubleshooting. The reason why we recommend posting
appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and
other partners who read the newsgroups regularly can either share their
knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.
